Apps
6.4

However, one of the points where AnonymousVPN will need to work more are their applications and devices support. This is because when it comes to the operating systems that support their services, you only have the popular ones like Android, Mac, and Windows OS. However, if you need their services desperately on your Apple (iPad, iPhone) device, you have to download a public OpenVPN and download the region files from the site and then make a manual addition to the application.

Apps - highlights
  • Supports all major platforms
  • Apple products not supported
Apps - Conclusions
AnonymousVPN supports Android, Mac, and Windows, but iPhone and iPad need to be configured manually.
Support
4.7

They do not have the live chat method of contact. They do not have an email address system and there are no phone lines that could be used for direct contact. It is also not stated whether their support is 24x7x365. So, it can be said that they are lacking in support to some extent.

Support - highlights
  • 24x7x365 support
  • No live chat
  • No email support
Support - Conclusions
While customer support works 24x7x365, live chat and email support are not available.
Value for money
6.2

AnonymousVPN have a few pricing plans for their subscribers. The first one is the $2 3-day trial. This is made in such a way that you can use it to understand what the major plans will look like, as it is meant to allow clients to have a sneak peek into what they will get. There is also a monthly plan that goes for $12 per month. The yearly plan is given at the cost of $69, which is $5.75 per month. In the midst of all these, they do not force people to remain with them, as AnonymousVPN offers a 14-day money back guarantee.

You can pay for the services of AnonymousVPN with all the major credit cards( American Express, Visa and MasterCard). But the sad aspect of it is that Bitcoin, which other providers have embraced as the most secure system due to anonymity is not accepted here.

Value for money - highlights
  • Multiple payment methods
  • No BitCoin payment
  • Limited pricing plans
Value for money - Conclusions
AnonymousVPN offer limited monthly and annual subscription plans.
